Drought and climate change have been especially hard on the Navajo Nation, the largest Native American tribe in the U.S. with more than 170,000 people living on the reservation in New Mexico, Arizona and Utah. The Four Corners region, where those states and Colorado meet at the edge of Navajoland, is truly the front line of climate change. — Climate Central
In Texas, which straddles the wet-dry divide between East and West, drought likely exacerbated by climate changemeans that confronting the threat of wildfires has become a way of life. And nowhere is that better illustrated than here in Austin, a booming metropolitan area of 1.8 million people. — Climate Central
Charleston is among the East Coast’s most vulnerable metropolitan areas to rising seas and a changing climate, which may threaten nearly $150 billion of infrastructure along the South Carolina coast. In the past century, the Atlantic has risen more than a foot along the coast near here and could rise an additional 5 feet by 2100, according to research on climate change’s impact on the Southeast released in November and used as part of the Third National Climate Assessment. — Climate Central

MY BLOG: 40°NORTH
